VEGA-SICILIA, MACAN CLASICO, 2018
The grapes come from plots with alkaline sandyclay soils. We had to wait until October to harvest this more Atlantic-influenced vintage. It has a more elegant profile and is more fluid so we could push the extraction a bit further. We increased the impact of the new oak barrel by 10 % during ageing, looking to give the wine more depth and structure.
Macán Clásico 2018 is the purest expression of Rioja Tempranillo, having a fresher, subtler, and more elegant profile.
